All matches are best of 3.
Team Liquid vs Gambit
The first match of the competition is a great one. Team Liquid vs Gambit. Two big teams, two teams that could really fight for the title. Team Liquid last year lost the 3rd place finale to Acne 2-0 and hope this season to do better. Last year they won the Red Bull Home Ground 2 against Acne and the VCT EMA Stage 3.
On the other side, Gambit finished 2nd in the Valorant Champions 2021 losing, them too, to Amend in the final. Gambit had a terrific 2021 winning the Stage 3 Master in Berlin and the other 2 A-Tier competitions.
Gambit is a great team and had a fantastic 2021, Team Liquid is a good team and should be a close game but we think Gambit will win this match. Bet at BetOnline
G2 eSports vs Fnatic
The second match of the day is the one between G2 eSports and Fnatic. Fnatic is a very popular eSports team in Europe but didn’t have a great season last year in Valorant. They lost the final for the 5th place in the Valorant Champions against Kru eSports. The biggest success they had in 2021 was winning the VCT Europe Stage 2 Challenger 2 against Team Liquid.
G2 eSports didn’t finish the year strong but had a terrific summer. G2 won 6 tournaments from July to September. Most of all were B-Tier tournament but still winning is never easy. They end the season losing the final for the 3rd sport in the VCT 2021 Stage 3 Master Berlin against Gambit.
G2 eSports had a better 2021 than Fnatic, the team is better and should be able to win this match. Bet at BetOnline
